I am writing you to protest the support being given to the Scientology cult
by U.S. Government agencies, by certain lawmakers, and by law enforcement
Scientology is a criminal enterprise, and the U.S.’s support of this
enterprise is revolting. I ask you instead to support the victims of
fraud, human rights abuses and criminality.
I was a Scientologist for 24 years. I was in the Sea Organization, the
corps that runs Scientology, and I attained the "training" level of
"Class IX Auditor," and the "processing" level of "OT
5." When I discovered that the cult had stolen from my credit card, I
Since leaving, I have been researching the history, actions and intentions of
Scientology, its founder L. Ron Hubbard, its present leader David Miscavige,
Miscavige’s henchman. When I concluded that I had been defrauded out of
all those years, and out of all the money I paid to obtain Scientology’s
promised results -- promises that are utterly false -- I
requested a refund of my money (over $61,500) pursuant to the cult’s
own refund policy and promise.
The promises Scientology makes, and the services it sells, are completely

and an increase in Intelligence Quotient of a point per hour of its “

and then was kept trapped and slaving for the cult by a web of lies,
and threats. I had a thousand hours of Scientology’s “processing,

Miscavige’s response to my request for a refund was to
have me declared a "Suppressive Person," or “SP.”

judicially condemned "fair game" doctrine.
“ENEMY – SP Order. Fair game. May be deprived of property

May be tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed.”
Miscavige also ordered that my only daughter, Ann Reinertsen, now Ann
disconnect from me. Threats from Scientology made me leave the U.S. in 2001
go to Canada. More threats from Scientology made me leave Canada last year and
come to Germany, along with my fiancé Gerry Armstrong,
who is himself a major target of Miscavige "fair game."
Just this month I came into possession of a Scientology "checksheet,"
or program, by which the organization is training its intelligence personnel
to obliterate "enemies." This discovery made me physically ill.
By "enemies," Scientology means good people – the good
people who oppose its fraud, abuses and its criminal activities, such as its
plan for obliterating good people. The cult declared me to be an "
enemy" in 2002. I believe it is not possible to obliterate people without
violence, in fact without murder.
Just consider how the following directive in some cult's intelligence
training manual would be viewed?
"Never get reasonable
about George Bush. Just go all the way in and obliterate him."
Or how about this?
"Never get reasonable
about the Jews. Just go all the way in and obliterate them."
Would the Secret Service or the Anti-Defamation League believe that no
is intended? No. And neither do I. The good people Scientology targets for
are as religious a class of people as the Jewish people. And they are just as
good, and just as deserving of governmental protection, as President Bush.
they are even more deserving of protection because, unlike Mr. Bush, they
up to and do not support Scientology fraud, abuse and criminality.
On June 6, I wrote a
of protest to Miscavige, because he is responsible for the
criminality, for the creation of this “checksheet”,
and for training and directing Scientologist agents to obliterate people like
me. Since Scientology is a dictatorship, Miscavige is also the one person
the cult who can issue the necessary orders to stop the obliteration training,
stop the fair game, stop breaking up families with disconnection, and refund
money his cult stole from me.
I think that fighting back against Miscavige's cult and doing what I can
end the threat of obliteration by his thugs will help me recover. I certainly
must fight the Miscavige cultists to end the enforced disconnection from my

The "checksheet" I have shows that he was in fact training
in the same espionage materials, and worse -- the obliteration of good people
-- a decade later.
As is also well known, in 1993, following the conviction and imprisonment
the Scientology Eleven, and after decades of refusal to give the cult tax
because of its lies and criminality, including crimes against the IRS, the
Government suddenly reversed itself. The
U.S. declared Scientology a "religion" and made it tax exempt.
the State Department, Justice Department, IRS and a number of Congressmen have
been supporting and promoting the cult, including by condemning other
that have continued to oppose Scientology for its excesses, abuses, criminal
and anti-democratic totalitarianism.
Since I left Scientology and have been targeted as fair game for asking for
my money back, I have had to confront the shocking fact that the U.S.
and officials, by supporting this cult as “religion,” are
the defrauding and fair gaming of its victims like me. My discovery, just over
three weeks ago, of this clear intention by Miscavige's intelligence apparatus
to obliterate people, shows me unequivocally that what the U.S. has been
is a criminal conspiracy. This obliteration plan also shows that those
that have opposed Scientology -- notably Germany, France, Belgium and Greece
were fully justified in their opposition, and that the U.S.’s
of those countries’ opposition is ignominious.
Scientology stated in its submission to the IRS, on which the cult’s
tax exemption was granted, that it is organized solely
for religious purposes. By this statement, Scientology makes fair game,
the obliteration of good people, its “religious” activity, and its
“religious purpose.” But the reality is even more diabolical than
this. On Scientology’s “checksheet,” the cult identifies
the obliteration of people as its “stable datum,” that is, its
central “truth,” on which all other data and activities in the
depend. Obliteration of good people -- people like me, whose only “
may be demanding the return of money ripped off from them -- is
key “religious” datum and activity.
As I wrote to Miscavige, and as must be known by the U.S. officials
in this issue, Time Magazine, in its May 6, 1991 cover story, “
- the Cult of Greed and Power” stated: “Scientology is quite
the most ruthless, the most classically terroristic, the most litigious and
most lucrative cult the country has ever seen.” Scientology sued Time
libel, and, although the defense cost the magazine some eight million dollars,
the organization lost. Scientology is indeed a ruthless, classically
Why does the U.S. Government support it, and condemn those countries that
oppose it? I believe that it is because Scientology is a ruthless, classically
terroristic cult, and because it is the U.S.’s own ruthless, terroristic
cult. It serves the U.S. Government’s purpose. If having an
ruthless, classically terroristic cult headquartered on its soil -- a cult
defrauds good people, fair games them and obliterates them -- did not serve
U.S.’s purpose, the government would oppose and not support this cult.
It is often stated that the aim of terrorism is to induce fear and
and to destroy our way of life. We are just as often admonished to not let
undermine our ability to pursue our normal activities. See, e.g.,
Because Scientology is organized to induce fear and anxiety in its “
and destroy our way of life, the cult is, beyond argument, a terrorist
The question is, since the U.S. Government and its agencies do nothing to
good people from this terrorist organization, and in fact support its
with tax exemption and with attacks on its critics, what must we,
“enemy” targets, ourselves do to prevent these terrorists from
our way of life -- or worse, obliterating us?
Scientology’s classic methods for inducing fear and anxiety and
the way of life of its “enemies” are “black
and financial ruin. Black propaganda
or black PR is the name Hubbard gave to his cult’s policy and practice
destroying “enemies’” reputations by the broad, relentless
often covert dissemination of lies and scandals about them. In a “
Policy Letter entitled "Battle
Tactics," from which the "obliteration-of-enemies" idea
comes, Hubbard ordered Scientologists to "degrade
the image of the enemy to beast level." Once a good person is
to beast level, it becomes easy, in fact laudable to obliterate him -- or her.
Miscavige’s declaring me to be a “suppressive person,”
to Scientologists means that I am a “criminal,” a
and one of the most evil people on earth, is pursuant to the cult’s
PR beastification doctrine, and a necessary step toward my obliteration.
In laying down what has been Scientology’s basic litigation strategy
for almost fifty years, Hubbard wrote:
purpose of the suit is to harass and discourage rather than to win. The law
be used very easily to harass, and enough harassment on somebody … will
generally be sufficient to cause his professional decease. If possible, of
ruin him utterly."
Such a policy and practice of using U.S. law for purposes of harassment
utterly ruining one’s targeted “enemies” is, by the law
unlawful. It is a sad commentary on the U.S. Justice system that, in violation
of its own law, it has permitted itself to be used by this cult for these
purposes. But the shame on Justice is nothing compared with the suffering of
victims of Scientology’s use of the system to harass and ruin them.
It is certain that people do not commit suicide out of fear that Islamic
will bomb them. But many suicides are rooted in a loss of reputation or
ruin. In the west, the threat of reputational or financial ruination generates
far more fear and anxiety, and undermines far more people’s ability to
normal activities, than the threat of being bombed. Since Scientology has
and practices of destroying the reputations of its “enemies,”
them utterly, as well as threatening them physically, is organized for these
activities, and is training its personnel to carry out these crimes, this cult
is more terroristic to its “enemies” than are Islamic bombers. The
U.S. Government, disgracefully, has ignored the fact that Scientology’s
“enemies,” whom the cult targets for obliteration, are the same
of citizens that the Islamic bombers target – utterly innocent good
Since Scientology is a terrorist organization, why then is Homeland
Secretary Tom Ridge meeting with this cult’s PR representatives, and participating
in a photo shoot? Homeland Security should be making citizens secure at
not schmoozing with the cultists who terrorize them.
Since the cult is involved in criminal fraud and a criminal conspiracy to
good people, why is a Florida police department “coming
very dangerously close to becoming a private security force for …
And why did California
police officers declare the cult to be “Organization of the Year?
Police everywhere should be fighting the Scientology fraudsters and criminal
and protecting citizens, the good people whom the cult victimizes and targets.
Since Scientology’s “study technology” is being used, as
this checksheet shows, to train Scientologists to obliterate good people, why
are “senior Bush administration officials at the Department of
including Education Secretary Rod Paige, meeting with cult actor Tom Cruise to
listen to him promote this “tech?” Since Scientology is a criminal
enterprise that terrorizes good people, why does the White House
invite in Cruise to lobby “on Scientology-related issues?”
Since a person who is lured into Scientology will be lied to, defrauded and
abused, and can be targeted as an “SP” and fair gamed by the
just for leaving the cult, why is the Bush Administration putting its seal of
approval on this enterprise? Does the Administration invite in other mafias
validate other criminal rackets? The fact that the U.S. Government allows the
Scientology fraud to persist gives the appearance of endorsement. But
approval is very wrong. Scientology is a criminal fraud. If Tom Cruise does
know about his cult’s criminal intentions and activities, his
is worse than worthless. If he does know what he’s shilling for, he is a
criminal just like his cult’s leadership.
has Congress and other official committees held hearings to condemn other
for opposing the classically terroristic Scientology cult? And why has
and the Administration listened attentively to Scientologists lie about how
are discriminated against in those countries, but has never dared to listen to
this cult’s victims? Why has the U.S. State Department published annual
human rights reports criticizing those countries – the ones wise and
enough to oppose this terroristic cult -- for “religious discrimination?
And why has the State Department said nothing in its reports about
history of criminality, its exceedingly well-known antisocial and anti-
policies and practices, and its unholy beastification of good people,
Why do U.S. Government officials support the Scientology cult in its
rights” campaign, when the cult is in truth a destroyer of human rights?
The U.S. has an obligation to its citizens and to the world community to
the destruction of human rights, not support the destroyers. That
true aim is the destruction of basic human rights, and not the defense and
of human rights, is clear to anyone with eyes to see. What
the cult is doing with Gerry Armstrong is all the proof any thinking
could possibly need to know that this cult is no respecter of human rights,
a lying, vicious destroyer of our precious rights.
The U.S. Government officials cannot help but know that Scientology is a
rights destroyer. Why then do these officials pretend to be fooled by the
protestations that their human rights are being threatened by the good people
and good nations that oppose the cult’s criminality? Why do these
pretend to be fooled by the cult calling one of its offensive arms its “
Rights Office” and calling L. Ron Hubbard a “humanitarian?”
The “Human Rights Office” is part of the cult’s notorious

to Scientology processing. The “human rights” that Scientologists
lobby, lie and attack for, and the “religious freedoms” they
protest and beastify their opponents for, are rights and freedoms that no
should be given. What Scientology and its cultists seek are the rights and
to defraud customers, to degrade good people to beast level, and to fair game
and obliterate them.
Terrible history has shown that the Jewish people in Europe were justified
in taking up arms against the Nazis long before a few courageous remnants
and starving in ghettos did so. Almost certainly, the Jews would have even
too late to successfully defend themselves if they had taken up arms when the
Nazis came to power in 1933. I believe that the Jews were justified in arming
themselves and preparing for war when Gottfried Feder and Adolph Hitler

depriving the Jews of their human rights. And the Jews were justified in
Nazis when the government did not rapidly prohibit such a plan and punish the
planners. If the Jews had waited, which they did, until the Nazis executed the
plan and “legally” deprived them of their human rights, including
self-defense, it was too late to fight back.
Scientology’s “enemies,” the “SPs,” are in
same position, relative to the Miscavige cult, as the Nazis’ “
the Jews, were in, relative to the Hitler cult. Scientology beastifies SPs
as the Nazis beastified the Jews. Scientology uses its pseudo-science to
Scientologists’ superiority and SPs’ inferiority, just as the
“proved” their own superiority and Jewish inferiority with their
pseudo-science. Scientology teaches that SPs should be denied citizenship and
deprived of human rights, just as the Nazis taught that Jews were not citizens
and had no rights. Scientology has, and obviously the Nazis had, a policy of
their “enemies” of property, of injuring them, tricking them,
to them and destroying them, without any discipline of the Scientologist or
perpetrator. Both Scientology and the Nazis concluded that the final solution
to the “enemies” problem -- SPs and Jews-- was their disposal,
and without sorrow. Obliteration!
It is foolishness to believe that Scientology is a “religious
and not a political cult and therefore can never come to power and be in a
to exterminate people as the Nazis did. Scientology’s goals are
and the power the cult seeks is political power. The checksheet I recently
states unambiguously that Scientology’s goal is political power and
that the Scientologist trainees demonstrate this goal and their cult’s
for attaining the goal with modeling clay.

The “goals of Scientology” referred to in this checksheet step
the beastification of the cult’s “enemies,” the demolition

of their property, and their quiet, sorrowless obliteration.
Scientology’s claim of being a “religion” organized
for “religious purposes” provides the cult with a cover, and a
for its frightful political goals. Its “religious” status is a
that facilitates the beastification and obliteration of its opponents. The
cult generates the illusion that it occupies a moral high ground from which it
can black PR the good people who oppose being beastified and obliterated as
bigots,” or “anti-religious extremists.”
But Scientology’s assertions of its religiosity should make no
whatsoever in judging and taking action against its anti-human rights
agenda and crimes. What if the Nazis had declared National Socialism to be a
Would the U.S. then have accepted the beastification, incarceration and
of the Jews as protected religious expression? Would the U.S. have condemned
U.K. and the Commonwealth countries for attempting to restrain the Nazi
practitioners’ religious liberties?
Since Scientology’s directives -- which, of course, the cultists
“scriptures” -- call for crimes against SPs, including the
of their human rights and their obliteration, are not the SPs justified by
and by present societal conditions and standards in arming themselves to fight
back? Are not the SPs justified in organizing and training an army to
the obliterators? Since the U.S. Government refuses to enforce its own law to
prohibit and punish Scientology’s human rights violations, are not the
justified in shooting down Scientologists, as Miscavige gloats of shooting
What the Scientologists are doing to SPs is a violation of U.S.Code Title

Yet instead of prosecuting Scientology’s conspiracy to destroy the

Why does no U.S. Government official speak out against the evil that is
Why does no official speak up for the cult’s victims? I believe it is
of the fear and anxiety that Scientology generates with the threat of black PR

that this is because, among western politicians and government officials, the

And that is precisely why U.S. Government officials, Congress and Law
must do something, must stand up to Scientology, and must start to protect and
make whole this cult’s victims.
If no one in the U.S. Government will stand up to Scientology terrorism, if
no one has the courage to enforce existing federal laws against this criminal
organization, what options do we SPs, the cult’s “enemies,”
have? If there is no one in the U.S. Government courageous enough to risk
beastified and obliterated to do something to stop the war between the
and the SPs what can we do but fight back, even if that necessitates fighting
back against the government that supports this cult? It is too late to prevent
the war, because, as Hubbard’s Policy Letter “Battle
Tactics” shows, Scientologists have been waging a dirty, largely
war on the good people who comprise its “enemies” for decades. But
it might not be too late to stop the war before it becomes terribly deadly,
we SPs have really not yet begun to fight.
It may be too late for justice, for safety, for security, or even for
It may be that Scientology has indeed brought every U.S. Government official
a state of complete compliance with the cult’s goals. But I am writing
the hope that there are still some officials in the U.S. with the courage
to stand up to Scientology and its government collaborators, and to speak out
for its victims. I am hoping that some courageous officials will speak out
the cult’s secular fraud by which it extorts and impoverishes its marks,
against “disconnection” by which the cult destroys families, and
fair game by which it terrorizes good people. I am hoping that in the U.S.
are some new von Stauffenbergs, some courageous persons who will risk
finances, career and life to try to end this evil, as the original von
did to try to end a similar evil a lifetime ago.
If there are any courageous persons in government or law enforcement in the
U.S. who will stand up for Scientology’s SP targets please, I pray, do
now. If there is even one courageous person, please, I pray, let us hear from
you. Let us know that we, the people who are Scientology’s SPs, have
for a future free of this cult’s terrorism.
In God we trust.
